The best damn driving tour of San Francisco

Never been to San Francisco before? Never biked across the Golden Gate bridge? Never taken the Red Line to Alcatraz? Never heard the bellow of Fisherman’s Wharf sea lions? Never seen the view from Twin Peaks? Then you need this driving tour.

It’s a fairly comprehensive — but speedy — tour of the “Jewel Of The Pacific.” Here’s what you’ll see when you pilot your rental car around on the best damn driving tour of San Francisco:
